Great post by Beth Still over on Wes Fryer's blog: Moving at the Speed of Creativity.
For those who knew @mathfaery – you may want to go to this blog and contribute to the fund in her memory. What a horrible Loss.
Here are the details:
“Elizabeth Hamman was a great math educator who will be truly missed in the International math community. She passed away very suddenly last week, at the age of 40, after suddenly developing a problem with blood clots in her lungs, which led to a bleed in her brain. Elizabeth started writing a blog last year, called Mathfaery: Making Math Magical and was known as @mathfaery on twitter.”

I like it because kids collect information on their travel wiki. I'm looking to have my nine year old test this site and will let you know.
